A friend sent me this video of Shiva Nazar-Ahari. It has English sub-titles. Please take a look at it.
I was really struck by Shiva’s words, her character, and the strength of her convictions to protect the human rights of our Iranian sisters and brothers. When you look at the blood-thirsty brutality of the IRI government, it is amazing how the examples of Shiva and the many others stand so bright. Not to sound cliché, but the darker the actions of the mullahs, the brighter Shiva’s actions shine. She has made such a commitment to stay in Iran and be a voice to those treated unjustly.Please continue to raise awareness for the Shivas of Iran. Let us also pray for the strength of each of these individuals. In our prayers and meditations, let’s remember their loneliness and isolation in their prison cells and beseech God (or whatever higher power you believe in) that our love, support, and gratitude will be felt behind those prison bars. During their tortures, let’s beseech God that they can feel our hands in their hands.
